The carriages are some of the most historic in the world, lovingly restored to their 1920s finishes with polished wood, plush upholstery, and antique fixtures. But your journey on this storied train isn’t just about the carriages, it’s about the journey itself. Enjoy the romance of the era as you travel between Europe‘s top destinations.
Watch the scenery unfold from the plush sofas in your cabin. While you are at dinner, a steward transforms your cabin into a cozy bedroom. Many of the cabins have adjoining doors that can be converted into Cabin Suites. Inside each room you’ll find a washbasin with hot and cold water, towels, bathrobes, and slippers. True to the history and character of the cars, toilets are located on either or both ends of the sleeping car.
There are three grand suites on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, each have their own en suite bathrooms and showers. In the Istanbul Suite, you’ll find hand-carved timber, embossed leather, and embroidered pillows and rugs. The Paris Suite is classic and chic, with flourishes of haute couture. Influenced by Italian Barodque and renaissance design, the Venetian Suite is fitted with woven fabrics, glass lamps, and Venetian furniture.
Three dining cars, each individually decorated to represent the height of Art Deco design, are a highlight of the rail experience. The cuisine on board is famed. Three-course lunches and four-course dinners are prepared buy Executive Chef Christian Bodiguel who takes his inspiration from seasonal and local ingredients from the places along the train’s route. You can never be over-dressed on the Belmond Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Evening dress is required for dinner, and many guests choose to wear their most glamorous outfits.
In the Champagne bar car, sip on flutes of crisp champagne and listen to a pianist tickle the ivories on a baby grand as you glide past the countryside. With Art Deco interiors and Lalique glassware, it’s a formal affair recalling the romance and glamour of the Roaring Twenties.Request Information
